A Well-Watered Grave...
Sometimes forgotten old things bubble to the surface of your particular pool of time,
Most especially in this era of recorded everything.
An old TV show from over a decade ago,
From my zombie workaholic era,
I missed it working the graveyard shift.
The ghost of its two-season run haunted us this past month,
A glimpse into a time capsule from 2003,
One that died a premature death,
Despite its utter brilliance and highly poetic sitcom patina.
Georgia Lass may have been obliterated by a flying toilet from the cosmos at 18,
But was a badass soul-reaper and heart-stealer,
A stand-in for those we've lost in every decade of the last century.
I watered her grave when she smiled back at her headstone,
All dark humor and love that outlasts everything.

A binge-watch of the 2003 sitcom "Dead Like Me" will stick with me for a very, very long time.
